Yep. The original Metroid 2 had real quality music.

This. The Metroid 2 main theme is one of the very few tracks that's actually recognizable as music.

Granted Samus Returns does still fall victim to this, they've added a few remixed tracks from other games like the awesome Lower Norfair track from Super Metroid, but still most of the time the music in Samus Returns is one of the various generic atmospheric pieces that all blend in together to the point where they really lack any identity of their own.

I hate to bring out AM2R to this discussion since mere mention of it seems to trigger some people, but the crew that made that game had the right idea, and replaced the beep-boop tracks from the original with actual recognizable pieces from the other games.

It's not a game aimed to be iconic like Metroid, Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion or Metroid Prime; it's simply a quick piece of entertainment given to a 3rd party studio who never showed much interest in creating a timeless gem --- not unlike Marvel Studios and their "m'kay" formulaic flicks.

It's a mindless "play then forget" experience to burn through some free time.

How is the map system bad? It gives more detail than any previous Metroid game, and lets you place your own markers so you can leave reminders for yourself. It's probably got the best map system of any of the games.

It did and if you are trying to suggest that the music you posted doesn't serve it's purpose of establishing an isolated, tense and foreboding atmosphere you couldn't be more wrong.

this game has a bad map system and idk what anything even means


It would've been pretty helpful if they included a legend for the indicators on the map on the pause screen.
